Why interactive games are sometimes dangerous

Welcome! I’ve found interesting news about 43 year old Japanese piano teacher suspected for her online husband from Maple Story. She can face 5 years of jail or a fine of up to 5,000 dollars for that terrible crime related to online interactive games.

Well, she was angry after the man, who was her-in-game-husband, abruptly broke off this interesting online relationship. After that, filled with fury women signed on to his profile with his identification data and deleted his avatar from Maple Story. She said later at police station -
“I was suddenly divorced, without a word of warning. That made me so angry,” she is being charged for “illegal access onto a computer and manipulating electronic data,”
not a murder of course, but in the world of online interactive games.

Her man, 33 years old office worker from Sapporo, far, far away in the Japan, after that incident called the police. He said that he “raised” his avatar for more than a year and then his ex-girlfriend or wife or whatever she was, deleted his account. For us, it’s important to hide our logins and password. You should be aware that someone can destroy your character just like piano teacher.

If you are thinking to check out Maple Story, you shouldn’t worry about your laptop it’s almost 100% sure that your computer is great enough to play in this marvelous game. Official system requirements are quite low, anyway check them out!

You need:

Intel Celeron 500 MHz CPU
750 MB hard disk space and Direct3D support
Internet connection (at least 56 kbit/s)

As you can see MS is simple, but sweet 2D game. It’s looking like classical platform game. And game is for free, so you don’t need to pay lot of cash for subscription. I think it’s strongest point of Maple Story and that’s why game has almost 50 million of gamers. Nexon Company earns around 250 million dollars, developing this cool online interactive games.

Christmas, are very close, so in Maple Story we will be able to participate in cool Christmas event!
First is called “Christmas Frenzy Event” (16 Dec – 15 Jan 2009). Every year, Maple players can went on special festival at Happyville.

Second is “Gift-Icon Update Anniversary Event, available 16 Dec to 31 Dec. Maple Story players can now send giftable items to other players. Those gamer who send giftable items, to other gamers will get special cash and best interactive games.

Third is “Login Everyday” Event, 31 Dec – 7 Jan 2009. This event is for Maplers who login often to Maple Story can obtain marvelous things, 1st is 2x Drop Item Coupon for 15 days and second Regular Hairshop Coupon (Ludibrium).

There is also “Boxing Day” Cash Item DC Event, separated into 2 part, first one 18 Dec – 22 Dec and second, 23 Dec – 15 Jan. This one is focused on “Cash- Items” and interactive games.

So dear gamers mates, Merry Christmas and happy new year! I hope next year will be fantastic for everyone, not only gamers.

Cool Dream of Mirror online

Welcome, this time I would like to present nice game for everyone who like cute free online interactive games - Dream of Mirror Online. Yeah I got some time without my Aion, so I want to have a break or something like that. We can enter manga style world to socialize, explore large in-game world, learn skills and master classes. It is a geared towards the younger crowd with its cute g-rated graphics. Based on Chinese mythology, the world of Dream of Mirror Online exists as an alternate reality inside the “Kunlun Mirror,” mythical artifact. According to the legends, the world we know was born from the Kunlun Mirror, and the mirror contains the power to destroy the world as well. If you love free interactive games, you should know that Dream of Mirror is using the micro transactions are for awesome costumes, sweet pets, experience bonuses, and some potent items. So it's free interactive game but for some stuff you need to pay real cash even if some features is for free.

Weapons grow too, and pets are active allied during combats. In this game user can fly all over the places riding its weapons. Game’s interface is nice and user friendly and is built to assist gamer’s interactions and to involve him into free online interactive games. Except for many awesome functions the players can access, there are also many paths designed for new players to start the game easily.

(Dream Mirror Online)

There are many various types of gamers out there, some like fighters who love hth combat, I do not particularly care for that kind of stuff. The class system is fun and keeps you interested. I don't know too many mmorpgs out there that allow you to take on all classes on the same character so it's very good online interactive games. No its not for new gamers only, I have been playing online games since 2001, it really has to do with your preference. It is a good game for casual players like myself who can't play every day or weekend due to life responsibilities. If I were to play to much in any game would get boring pretty fast. I also have to mention the gamers are overall marvelous, and I really enjoy the community. In game there is a lot of superb features such as extensive customization - gamers can choose from a huuuuuge variety of hairstyles & colors, superb costumes, and adjustable features for each avatar, allowing each gamer to show his or her look. Game-play is fun in team (playing solo is extremely boring), and you can be any class, and you can have all the classes in back-up. I find this Mirror Online is high quality compared to some of free online interactive games. The Kunlun Mirror was originally created to record everything in the world. Magical mirror reflects the real world and saves a copy of everything within itself and copy is known as the “Kunlun Mirror world”.

Robust Crafting System, players can choose from among six skills – meditation, mining, animal herding, fishing, farming, and forestry – to gather the raw materials necessary to make brand-new weapons and armor with the power of alchemy. The results are even better than what the stores sell!

Aion Online t-shirts

Now everyone, who want to share with the world their love to the our favorite game - Aion Online – can buy at J!NX fresh and new T-Shirts from their special Aion collection. In my opinion, those shirts are just looking fantastic and I am going to buy one of them soon – they are way too cool to be able to avoid that purchase. Price is good and I don't mind spending these sixty euro for three shirts.

From the other worth notation news, you know about great start of Aion Online? NCSoft has admitted, that they had almost 400,000 pre-orders, which made Aion Online the biggest MMO launch in 2009. What's actually is tragic, is the fact, that after premiere there have been a massive queues and in order to play in Aion online, we have had to wait for a few hours, until we could even login into the Aion universe. Personally, I had to wait for about two to three hours, but It does not matter, because I had had in plans to play in game for the whole night. Don't ask, how did I looked at the morning, but it was worth it.

Anyway, that number of players is good, because until there is community in specified game, until game is alive (Blizzard has been releasing patches to Diablo 2 or StarCraft even now). Don't mention about that I don't need to still farm Aion kinah and I can easily trade with items. That's why, NCSoft is making also massive upgrade to the Aion Online – it includes some gameplay changes, as also extreme graphical changes – if you want to see trailer, check it out on YT.

And here we are, after a some time which has passed after the Aion online premiere. I have already created few characters and having fun in the Aion's universe. If you don't know, what Aion online is, I will happily introduce it to you.

Aion online is one of the Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games (MMORPG) and it has all features, which cRPG should has, which I mean storyline, avatar creation, interaction with game's world, Non-player characters, possibility to fight with various monsters and gather experience and develop our precious avatar.

Of course, avatar creation we are starting by choosing server on which we would like to play. You can choose by seeing It's population and name – there is no split into PvP and PvE server(probably yet). After selecting a server, you now have to choose in which side of conflict which you want to play – the Elyos or the Asmodiands – to put it simply, good guys or bad guys. Obviously, this selection indicates your starting zone.

If you decided about the race, now It's another dilemma – class(and maybe gender, women in Aion are actually very pretty). Classes in Aion online has similar system like in Lineage II – you have to select a main class and during the character development, you are deciding about your specialization, which I mean for example Priest going into supporting (Chanter) or battling way (Cleric).

Now, when you have finished class choosing, It's time for changing the look. You can choose from various body types and preset faces as well. If you don't like the look of your future avatar, you can easily change it with sliders. And remember about choosing a voice.

When you finish all, you will have overall character preview with zoom and rotating options.

That's it for today, I hope this post will be helpful to you. I will write some more about classes in the next post, so stay up for more.

16 000 accounts banned in Aion Online

Almost 16,000 accounts have been removed from the Western version of massively multiplayer online game Aion, primarily for using third party software (botting) and taking part in illegal gold buying and selling.

In a post on the official forums community manager Andrew Beegle announced the bans as part of a snap server wide reboot, after evidence for account violations had been gathered over several weeks.

We are taking a very hard stance on this issue and do have sophisticated processes and procedures in place that help us keep unwarranted banning to a minimum, said Beegle.

Any action that modifies the client or automates the same way a bot does could potentially flag an account as a violator, he clarified. Please understand that it is not what YOU have done on your account, but what the account has done. If your account is shared, purchased, borrowed, or power-levelled, it could be the actions of anyone who’s ever used the account.

Also I heard a rumor about double XP weekend is upon us, and just in time, so are the Veteran Rewards. This month's rewards are a simple:

Revival Stone (4)
Lodas Amulet (4)

If you were one of the most Honored Daevas to have started on the game's September 22nd release date, login to the NCSoft Master Account page every 22nd to apply your in-game rewards.

How to protect your Aion Account

With an increase in Aion account thefts being reported, keeping game accounts safe has become a high priority for us all. What can you do to ensure the safety of your own account? NCsoft shares a few tips.

Follow simple measures that will help keep your toons safe

1. Change your NCSoft Master Account password as well as all of your game account passwords on a regular basis.

2. Use unique usernames and passwords for your NCSoft Master Account and game accounts.

3. Never share your account information or passwords with anyone. NCSoft employees will never ask for your account information, unless you contact Customer Service directly for assistance.

4. Beware of phishing attempts in-game and online. Do not click on any in-game link, as NCSoft will never send you an in-game link. When logging into your NCsoft Master Account be aware that some sites will use identical visuals, links, and special offers in an attempt to steal your account information.

5. Keep your operating system and virus protection software updated.

It also appears that scammers are utilizing Aion gaming forums as well, posting threads with questionable links that aim to infect susceptible computers. Be careful of where you click! If it's a link to see naked women caught by satellite, it's probably not good.

Also As gaming communities across the web take inventory of the last year, many are summing up 2009's MMOG releases and putting their own stamp of approval, or disapproval, on the best and worst games of the year. Aion has managed to impress multiple community sites bringing home even MMORPG.com's coveted Best New Game of 2009.

For those who might not have guessed, MMORPG.com's New Game of 2009 is NCsoft's Aion. On the surface, Aion is one of the most graphically impressive MMORPGs created to date, sporting visuals that are thus far unmatched in the MMO genre. In creating Aion, the game's developers took existing concepts and conventions of gameplay and added interesting aspects like the game's flight system to give it its own flavor.

MMORPG.com was not the only community site that found Aion to be the game that made 2009, many other sites, including Ten Ton Hammer, had favorable things to say about the eastern crossover MMMOG.
